The latest Ford S-MAX - 10 of the Best New Features

The all-new Ford S-MAX has arrived and is ready to take the streets by storm. With a host of new features inside and out, this brilliant family car offers better practicality for a more all-round driving experience. We’ve assessed the new updates and come up with our top ten.

The facelift

The S-MAX receives the same front updates that the Focus and Fiesta have been given. This means the big, bold grille dominates the frontage to provide a stronger road presence.

Uncluttered dashboard

Ford has completely cleaned up the dashboard of the new S-MAX, helping you to easily find all the important information when you need to.

Never put the wrong fuel in

The Ford Easy-Fuel system means it is impossible to put the wrong type of fuel into the S-MAX. It is also a capless system, which helps you to keep your hands clean.

Sportier overall look

Refreshed shaping gives the S-MAX sleeker curves and a more dynamic feel, with rakish angles wherever you look.


This advanced infotainment system is fitted on all trims – Zetec, Titanium and Titanium Sport – giving you the chance to make calls, browse social media and much more.

One-touch handbrake

Replacing the old and clunky airline-style joystick, there is a new one-touch handbrake. This will make it easier and quicker to apply the handbrake when you are stuck in traffic or parking the S-MAX.

Refreshed flared arches

The previous generation of the S-MAX had rather clunky-looking wheel arch blisters, but they have been ditched in place of flared arches that are stylish without being overbearing.

Adaptive front steering system

This system will give you more confidence in the ability of the S-MAX to cope with tight corners as well as tricky manoeuvres.

20 new technologies

Yes, that’s 20 (twenty) new technologies! The set-up includes a Glare-Free High Beam, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and an Intelligent Speed Limiter. All of these will work to make your life stress-free on the road in a variety of driving scenarios.

New petrol engines

The latest S-MAX has a selection of new engines, including the ultra-impressive 2.0-litre bi-turbo model that sits at the top of the range. An Ecoboost petrol version offers a punchy 238bhp, which is complemented by an impressive fuel economy figure of 43.6mpg.
